David Powell, born without hands, shares videos on his YouTube channel (David Powell Speaking) demonstrating how he accomplishes everyday tasks.

One of David’s subscribers asked him “How do you write without hands?” 

David picks up the pen with his lips. He holds the pen between his upper arm and cheek. David leans forward until the pen reaches the paper, and uses slight movements of his head to write.
